Mrs. Margaret East

Wife of Eld. M.D. East, was born February 11, 1844; died February 9, 1897, Aged 52 years, 11 months and 28 days.
This dear sister had walked hand in hand with our now bereaved brother for more than a quarter of a century. She leaves a husband, two sons, and three daughters to mourn the loss of a kind companion and loving mother. Sister East professed a hope in Christ in 1865 and was baptized into the fellowship of the Baptist church at Jackson, Randolph county, Ark, by Eld. B.F. Holdford in 1874. Her fidelity as a true Christian is exemplified in the fact that four of her five children, all that have come to the years of accountability are members of the Bpatist church. Her funeral service was preached at the graveyard by Eld. G.H. Borah from John 11:18: " He calleth for thee"
"Sister, thou wast mild and lovely,
Getle as the summer breeze;
Pleasant as the air of evening,
When it floats among the trees."

Imboden, Ark.
Arkansas Baptist, February 24, 1897, page 15
